Atom User Reviews for Inu-Oh
Wow. I knew there was music, but I didn't know there was MUSIC. The lead singer/VA is unbelievably good in their voice range, both singing and voice acting. The rest of the cast besides Inu-Oh's friend are side characters at most, but that is fine. Inu-Oh tells the story of a hidden and dark past through song and dance, through beautiful execution. If you like Rock, Japanese folklore, do yourself a favor and watch this movie. Now!
I’m in lost for words…. I’m very happy.
the music was incredible; and the art style looks so good
It’s a fantastic rock musical. Very well told stories with great fx.
Great anime movie. Interesting story about a cursed and deformed man and his blinded musican.
It’s a psychedelic, bombastic rock opera, but amid all the energy, Yuasa ponders what stories have been lost as society’s more controlling elements attempt to control how art is made and distributed.
Basically, Inu-oh is to Noh as spray-painted graffiti is to traditional Japanese calligraphy.
A rich, unstable alloy of history, legend, musical pageantry and cinematic psychedelia, it mounts an argument for mind-expanding, complacency-rattling art in a world that often prefers the opposite.
